Auckland Hub

The Auckland Hub is a group of young innovators and entrepreneurs brought together by our shared desire to improve Tāmaki Makaurau.

We are passionate about improving the state of our city, and bring together a variety of interests and disciplines in order to facilitate real change.

Auckland is a fascinating and unique city. One third of all New Zealanders call Auckland home, we have a historic and significant Māori prescence, we're home to the largest polynesian population in the world, 40% of our population was born outside of New Zealand, our population skews younger than the rest of the country, and we're one of the most expensive cities to live in the world.

To tackle some of the problems of our young and growing city, Auckland Hub gathers together expertise accross filmmaking, impact investing, project management, strategy, law, medical research, international trade, and a variety of other disciplines. We work to utilise the skills accross our network to focus on challenging specific issues of concern in Tāmaki Makaurau.

Currently, these include projects working on; lonliness and mental health, equity in the digital divide, and climate change migration pathways. Our membership is also engaged in a multitude of individual personal and professional projects, and benefit from being able to access the hub's significant network of expertise.

We meet monthly to develop ourselves, the projects of our hub, and to socialise. We also meet annually with hubs from Wellington (Poneke) and Christchurch (Ōtautahi), and engage regularly with hubs from accross Oceania and the world.
